Michael Brown reckons every member of the squad faces a battle to pull on the white shirt every weekend.
The all-action midfielder was back in the starting line-up on the right-hand side of our 1-0 win against Birmingham City last time out.
He's first to admit that he'd rather be central but would play anywhere for a shirt.
"Obviously I'd prefer to play in the centre but it doesn't matter as long as I'm in the team," he insisted at Spurs Lodge.
"And it's the same with everyone. It's the way it is if you want to get a shirt.
"It's a big squad now, you've got to be on your toes and that has to be good for everyone."
Michael, meanwhile, was delighted to complete his first 90-minute stint since last season's finale at Wolves.
"It was my first game in a long time," he added. "I had one full game in pre-season and that was right at the start when I got injured.
"Realistically, that was the first full game I'd done since Wolves last season. I can't complain really. I got through it. It was a tough game.We've got a big squad now and there is a fight for every position."
